This report presents results from monitoring of forest vegetation in the North Coast and Cascades Network (NCCN) as part of the Inventory and Monitoring Program of the National Park Service (NPS). The program focuses on "vital signs," which are defined as "a relatively small set of information-rich attributes that are used to track the overall condition or "health" of park natural resources and to provide early warning of situations that require intervention" (Fancy et al. 2009).
